Discussion on MY SONS JANGO TRASH CAN ARMOR within the Jango Fett Costume forum, part of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy Bounty Hunters category;
Looks great for a former trash can!
Quick... make the diamond piece before people start asking where it is!
Did you make this or your son? How old is he? What kind of trash can? Looks cool!

the trashcan is rubbermaid brand the small one. it has some nice curves to it, fat on top and goes skinny, so it has a good torso structure.
That looks awesome.
That's very cool, wish my dad had made me stuff like that when I was a Kid! All I got was a Ben Cooper costume
Did you use a templet for the leg armor, neck and back along with the cod peice? If so could i snag it from you?
yes i did, i modified the ones that you are able to download here in the jango forums, i simply reduced the size on the medium by half on adobe ps,Originally Posted by Katua Fett

Looks like you are using a similar process to how I constructed my son's bucket. Check out my thread in the boba helmet section:
